In trouble-shooting my no-start situation on my 1965 Riviera Gran Sport, I have noticed my battery – when cold – (what else would I have?) reads 14.65 volts.
OK – I have since learned a 12 volt battery consists of 6 cells each of 2.2 volts, therefore it is really a 13.2 volt battery (one site said each cell is 2.15 volts - therefore a 12.9 volt battery).
So – why do I have a 14.65 reading?? This even after cranking the starter for a protracted period.
